I had high blood pressure in January 2019 while I was at my appointment to donate blood at my local blood bank. It showed 140/ 105. Say what? So, I left the facility and went to my general practitioner to get it checked out. Yep, the nurse checked it and it was high again. So, I was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure. I was put on medicine to take everyday. Heart disease does run in my family. My dad passed away at the young age of 68 with it on October 29, 2018. He had a stent put in his heart and had 2 triple bi-pass surgeries. I decided that this was no disease to play around with. I would get educated and start on a healthy living journey to take care of myself and my body. I have started exercising everyday and trying to eat right too.
My health is now priority. I check my blood pressure daily and take my pill at the same time everyday. Thankful, that I was able to get diagnosed and treat it before something happened to me. Please see the chart below to see where your blood pressure is at…Be prepared on the go!
